It’s a Great Year for Sustainability!

The Environmental Studies Program is pleased to announce that no less than three of our core faculty received awards in the UO’s inaugural Sustainability Awards Program, sponsored by the Office of Sustainability.

Peg Boulay and Katie Lynch received the Excellence In Teaching Award for their work in the Environmental Leadership Program. This award recognizes faculty members who have developed a curriculum that emphasizes the principles and advancement of sustainability practices. The award honors a person (or people) whose teaching creatively incorporates principles of sustainability or inspires students to participate in sustainability projects on and off campus, or both. Congratulations Peg and Katie!

Ronald Mitchell received the Research Innovation Award for his International Environmental Agreements Database project. This award is given to a University of Oregon project or Oregon company distributing or commercializing products or services developed from UO research that improve sustainability. Congratulations Ron!
